Kids Voting Minneapolis is a community-based, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization working to empower students in Minneapolis with the skills and confidence to embrace civic involvement and become active citizens as adults.
The mission of Kids Voting Minneapolis is: To foster an educated and engaged electorate by partnering with schools and families to enrich the civic education of Minneapolis K-12 students and to prepare them to be informed voters.
Kids Voting Minneapolis provides civics-based, K-12 classroom lessons and activities at no cost to all interested schools in the City of Minneapolis. Students learn about the right to vote, democracy, civic responsibility, and the importance of participation in the political process.
On Election Day, Kids Voting Minneapolis strives to give Minneapolis students the opportunity to experience an authentic voting experience and casting a Kids Voting ballot at a Minneapolis precinct polling location. This simple act takes the mystery out of the voting process and instills a sense of pride, accomplishment and responsibility which will stay with the student into adulthood.
Since 2004, we have aimed to give every Minneapolis student the opportunity to cast a Kids Voting ballot at a precinct polling locations staffed by Kids Voting Minneapolis volunteers.
Community support is critical to our success and we are grateful for the hundreds of volunteers who continue to make Kids Voting Minneapolis possible in every election year.
